Assemble Border Strips

1)    Sew solid green 2-5⁄8 × 3-1⁄2" rectangles to opposite edges of a solid light gray 2-5⁄8" square to make a border unit (Diagram 9). The unit should be 2-5⁄8  × 8-5⁄8" including seam allowances. Repeat to make 28 border units total.

2)    Referring to Diagram 10, sew together six border units so that points of solid light gray squares align. Sew a remaining solid green 2-5⁄8 × 3-1⁄2" rectangle to each end of row, making sure green rectangles extend at least 1⁄4" past solid green squares. Press seams in one direction.

3)    Trim Step 2 unit 1⁄4" from each outer solid green square point to make top border strip (Diagram 11). The strip should be to 3-1⁄2 × 18-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

4)    Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make bottom border strip.

5)    Using eight border units, repeat steps 2 and 3 to make a side border strip. The strip should be 3-1⁄2 × 24-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second side border strip.
